Excellent! Glad everybody enjoyed their goodies and the 2014 Secret Santa event went off without a hitch. Nicely done everyone, and BIG THANKS to Dextire for running the show for the first time this year!
Merry Christmas all!

Mighty fine video, inferno! I love the geeky chaos of that room.
As I'm off to somewhere I'm pretty sure still doesn't even have 3g coverage, Merry Christmas everyone!

I exist! With a video showing the presents I got this year from power duo Rog and Dr. Boogie, as I first opened them!
After getting most of my assignments done, I have finally edited and uploaded this video. Note that the quietness and any perceived lack of joyousness is entirely due to it being 5am at my time of filming. I really like the gifts I got.
Also, here is the letter I sent Dr. Boogie.

Great job on the videos, guys! "Chest net chess tips".
So all that's left is for inferno to post pictures and we'll have this year's event all wrapped up!

|I think Protoclown's video may have outshone my own because it featured a cat cameo as well as a sword in the background - which he so totally would own. Thanks again for the great gifts though Thanos, my friends think it was all pretty rad. ps Definitely awesome that Kobra Khan can do that!!

|Rock on MarioRPG! Great video. Glad everything was to your liking. That green monster was indeed a Masters of the Universe figure. It's Kobra Khan. You can remove his head and fill his body with water. Replace the head and push down and he'll spit "venom" out his mouth. How cool?!

As promised - here is the video of my gift openings. For those of you that don't watch videos, I received a bunch of 80s toys and some comics - you should watch the video!

looking good! as an update, it looks like just MarioRPG and inferno have yet to get their gifts. (or at least post them) on the flip side Thanos and (If i'm understanding this whole 2 gifts set out thing) Dr. Boogie are left from the possible secret santas.
Everythings gone really smooth this year.

I received my package from 10,000 Volt Ghost yesterday! Woot! Thank you for the box of wondrous goodies! And with the help of my friend Karim, I have made a video of the opening!

|Glad to hear MarioRPG. Hope the goodies in the box were to your liking! We all eagerly anticipate the video. :-D

Great pictures Dextire! I wanted to get you a Rat queens trade, but my favorite shop was out. So I sent another favorite Saga. I thought action Philosophers was amusing enough.

I received a package today filled with
Inside low and behold I found THE FINGER MONSTERS
The next gift will make sure I will not get ear bugs
Next up Alexander the Great and his Batstache
Finally we have some Jackalope wine guy
No note so not sure who sent it. Anyway happy Santa day.

A fine couple of hauls, Dr. Boogie!
I love that "necklace".
Okay, I got my package from BatmanJohnson and here's the pics!
Some nicely wrapped gifts along with a bunch of Christmas candy! The Santa ones are Crisp Kringles, ho ho ho!
Now that's quite a haul! Comics, Zombies, and Boba Fett! Rat Queens has four Daves. Action Philosophers has Plato necromancing Socrates back. And Saga is just all kinds of messed up.
Here we have "The Walking Dead" MiniMates. Tiny little Lego type figures. And the two things in the middle are shoulders for "Shoulder Zombie" to munch on!
And lastly we have a Boba Fett "fabrikation" from Funko! He's fabric with an awesome leather belt, can turn his head 360°, and has heavy flat feet to stand up easily.
Thanks for the great stuff, BatmanJohnson! And Merry Christmas, everybody!

|Got my package in the mail today. Pics are up in photo bucket butI need to get into my pc to properly put them in a post.
|Dec 16th, 2014 02:00 AM
Ah. Apologies for the mix-up.
And that does make more sense about the zombie cat being an ornament, and not an especially small necklace/large bracelet.
|Dec 16th, 2014 01:57 AM
Excellent hauls so far, everyone!
Also, Dr. Boogie giving Thanos candy along with a note joking about diabetes is like some kind of twisted Christmas miracle. Glad you can still make good use of the candies, Thanos! If we do another Secret Santa event next year, make sure you add "candy" alongside "pillows" to your list of things you don't want people to purchase for ya.
Anyway, keep the gift posts coming. According to Dextire, we're halfway done!

LOL! Just to be clear - I don't have man parts. I am a lady.
I am glad you didn't choke yourself to death because that's a Zombie Kitty Tree Ornament. LOL! It's made from Perler Beads.
Eating Raoul is dark comedy from the 80s. It's pretty nutty.
Sonique is trance. Count Basic is Acid Jazz but it's Kruder remixing so it's a bit of an added electronica element.
Since I wasn't sure what your interests were exactly, I tried to bring you an eclectic mix of things. hehe

And the next package is from Replicant. Her presents came nicely wrapped in a big box, but the box got a little wet in transit (I guess UPS trucks aren't watertight?), so I had to quickly unwrap and air dry them, but they still turned out okay:
First were a couple of Trash Pack figures. I call them Sammy Slug and Reinhard Drumstick.
I am totally blanking out on what you call that old toy where you put the beads down in a pattern and then melt them together, but here's a necklace of a zombie kitty with brains, and a zombie pin to match. I did almost choke myself out putting the thing around my neck.
On the edible front, I got one of those milk chocolate orange things and some peanut butter chocolate breakfast bar. Chocolate really is one of the best things to get for Xmas (again, apologies to Thanos).
And here, a selection of CDs. The Wipeout XL soundtrack I recognized because video games, but Count Basic and Sonique I am not familiar with. Still, always good to branch out so that you're not just stuck listening to Huey Lewis and the Backstreet Boys.
If there's a funnier movie about cannibalism, I haven't seen it (maybe Cannibal: The Musical, but it's close). Title kinda gives the ending away, though.
An anthology of science fiction stories. And not just any sci-fi stories; these are based on stuff MIT claims could actually be developed, rather than the sort of ill-explained, magical technology in a lot of sci fi stories. Take that, Arthur C. Clarke!
This was a pretty impressive poster of Jesse and Walt from Breaking Bad. I don't have any glib comments to make about it. It's just a pretty cool poster.
Last of all was a Mad Libs card. I had the package sent to my office, and the first thing the front desk guy and I thought upon see it was "is that Kim Possible?"
It wasn't, and we both quickly distanced ourselves from that comment. We went through it, and here's the result:
Derek loves to go out and sing fast Christmas carols with his portly friends - but he always spikes his thermos of hot chocolate with too much 100-proof Drano. The result this year was a rather hairy rendition of "Jingle Bells" that went like this:
Dying through the Cape Canaveral in a one-horse open jetpack. O'er the fields we go, fencing all the way. Bells on John's tail ring, making spirits bright. What fun it is to ride and sing a digging song tonight. Jingle boots, jingle bells, jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to shock in a one-aardvark open sled.

I sent out two Secret Santa packages this year, and I received two in return. The first is from Inferno:
It's a Viewmaster package featuring several famous comic book heroes, from both DC and MArvel strangely enough. And rounding it out, a few Star Wars buttons. I really enjoyed how perfectly the Death Star fit onto the button.
The superhero ones came on a series of discs, and some came with books to provide extra exposition with each slide. I admit I don't know much about Viewmasters, but I thought the idea was to just look through them and see some cool pictures. Having to look through and break to do some reading seems kinda antithetical to the whole experience.
And as if that weren't confusing enough, the books had their own pictures, too! In this one, Superman is getting shot in the hand by Benito Mussolini. Weird book.
